"Now listen you maggots! Shoot 'em, blow 'em, kill 'em anyway you like, but remember this. The blue ones are bulletproof, so use knives or grenades. But not on the green ones, those are resistant to all forms of explosives... and poison, I think. The black ones cannot be drowned and the purple ones can safely ignore radiation, so nukes are useless. War has become more complicated, I guess."

People have a lot of space they scarcely/ever use. But why just hackers? When we start doing good, let's extend it to other professions. In no time, you will have two attorneys in the attic, a group of gangsters in the garage, a Romanian refugee in the refrigerator, an established loan-shark in the lounge, few pick-pockets in the patio, a visionary in the vestibule, and maybe even a killer in the kitchen.

But what if those people start interacting with each other?

Leveraging always beats prototyping.
